Amazon—a brand so big that the first thing that comes to mind when you hear "Amazon" is not a 2.1 million square mile land mass—makes a lot of money.
By focusing on innovation, adaptation, and customers, the erstwhile online bookseller has grown to become the e-commerce behemoth of the Internet, with a valuation nearly double those of Walmart, Macy's, and Target combined.
For instance, 40% of product sales on Amazon Marketplace come from third-party sellers, the graphic points out. Selling fees vary, but professional sellers can expect to pay Amazon $39.99 per month plus 10-15% for transactions. Or sellers can opt for Amazon's multichannel fulfillment to store, pack, and ship products for them.
